Bradley Honored with BEE Award
TUPELO, Mississippi—Brittany Bradley, unit coordinator for 3 Central, recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award.
Over the July 4 holiday weekend, Bradley helped nursing staff with patients. “I had a veteran patient who cried one night stating July 4th was a day he celebrated and he wished he was home,” wrote Lauren Holcomb, RN, in her nomination. “This really touched Brittany’s heart, and on July 4th, she bought him an American flag hat and made him a United States Air Force certificate. When she gave him the gifts, there was not a dry eye in the room.”
Holcomb thanked Bradley for her helping and “serving those who have served us.” “This kind act is exactly what those in health care should model,” she wrote. “One simple act made this patient’s whole hospital stay.”
Bradley joined the NMMC 3 Central staff seven years ago. A 2004 graduate of Tupelo High School, she attended Itawamba Community College. She previously worked at Mississippi Methodist Senior Services.
She received a certificate, a BEE Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and a cake. She also received NMMC’s BEE Award in 2019.
The BEE Award is given to a deserving caregiver each month at NMMC. Nomination forms are available throughout NMMC or at www.nmhs.net/bee-award. For more information, call (662) 377-3431 or email BEEAwards@nmhs.net.
